right first off im not a master nor do i claim to be just had one at home so i decided to take some pics for those who aint got a clue Smiley

after the hole has been dug build a square structure out of good hard wood we used totra as it gives off good heat, poke  stones and iron into the structure and light.

next wait till the fire burns down we burned this one bout 3.5 hours.

make sure stones and iron stay in the hottest part of the fire.

right here comes the fun part get all your meat and vege ready make sure to line baskets with cabage leaves put sputs,cabage  carrots kumura pumpkin in musilin bags.
next step is a cooker time to seperate in the ashes from the iron ect.grab shovels and meke up some hooks for irons and start the mission this should be done asap once then lay irons and stones down in the ember free sheet.

place baskets on irons meat first spuds second rest on top.

lay sheet over baskets to keep food clean from the saks then cover the lot with saks they must be wet so soak them in a drum of water.then bury the lot make sure thers no steam getting out of the pile



now the easy part drink piss wait for round for about four hours.
then rake of the soil carefully and pull the saks off the food watch out te steam dont get ya!

once all is reveald carry baskets away.
should look something like this.

hmmm makes me hungry...
Well one, I tend to prefer a lower stack and have the baskets side by side in a wider hole so that the food is all cooked at a more even temperature, I also throw a sheet of iron over the rocks before putting the baskets down which helps prevent smoke and keeps cleaner.
If you find soild with a lot of clay you will have an awesome hangi, it bakes like brick and seals the heat and moisture in, you end up with a red hard walled pit and can reuse it over and over again.
Good on you for putting that up Im sure a lot of people have always wanted to give it a go but not known how.
P.s Pig fat on teh rocks before the basket goes on puts a nice sweet flavour through it all  Cool

sorry, another question

when the food is in the baskets and stacked on the hot rocks, do you put wet sacks on first or tarp

silly question maybe, and i'm assuming the wetsacks or else the tarp would melt no doubt?

good post 3030.
Another tip is to have you fire next to the hole and when the stones/rocks/iron are hot enough just toss them into the actual cooking pit, means you don't have to clear all the fire debris out of the hole and it can be a lot cleaner.
Also similar to HH's tip, the potato peels, pumpkin seeds and all the vege scraps thrown on to the hangi stones can help with flavour too! Smiley
  

Make it happen!

heavy plastic sheet over the top saves piling dirt on top, just got to watch holes being burnt in it, steam gets recycled down into pit again, quite amazing how many variations out there now

I use irons in my hangi's and a wet clean sheet goes over the food baskets before the wet sacks.I find i only need to give mine 3 hours in the ground with irons as any longer and it can get over cooked.Pickled pork in the hangi is my favorite though any meat comes out primo and moist.I put my baskets side by side as well and the hole only needs to be slightly larger than the baskets,No need to heat more hole than you need to.I also find my fire only needs to burn for an 1 1/2 hours or until the fire has burnt down.

Not sure about the plastic... I also recommend sheets first (or anything cotton and wet) followed by sacks.

Rolled pork roast is my fav!

p.s. Wazza, love that avatar mate, bloody mesmerized me for about 2 minutes!

Good post!!! good skill to have the HAngi thing... never ceases to impress people when you put down a good one.... i have done a fair few now learnt a lot along the way!!

I burn the fire in the hole and instead of digging out the embers and ash i lay a real good layer of watercress in the bottom of the hole it keeeps everything down and adds an unreal flavour and smell to the hangi..... another heap on the top and your away..... i put my baskets side by side also..... Have tried goat and paua in a hangi and they turned out real good (not mixed together) but i have to admit that rolled pork is the business!!!!

put one down in a howling Featherston southerly a couple of weekends back... was quite the nervous few brews before i pulled it up turned out to be one of the best i had done!!


ahhhhhhhh Hangi day!!! Smiley Smiley

I do something similar called a mumu. Its from png and is above ground.
The modern way (my way) is heating the buggery out of rocks and a wheel rim. put the food wrapped in foil on the rim stack the rocks around it wrap it all up in banana leaves then cover the lot in wet newspaper, mountains of wet newspaper till no steam can escape. did one at christmas and just scoffed when the missus said she had seen banana trees round lake Rotorua. she insisted they were there so in the end i piled everyone in the car went to have a look poo pooing the idea right up till we pulled up next to bloody banana trees. never would have believed it had i not seen them myself.
